Cheltenham Festival Tips

What is the Coral Cup?

The Coral Cup is a Grade 3 handicap hurdle race which is traditionally held on the second day of the Cheltenham Festival, Ladies Day, which takes place on a Wednesday in March. The race is run over two miles and five furlongs, and has been sponsored by Coral throughout its history. It began life as a handicap, but was upgraded to Grade 3 handicap status in 1999.       

The history of the Coral Cup

The race was introduced to the festival line-up in 1993, and the inaugural winner, the David Pipe-trained Olympian, was awarded a £50,000 bonus having won the Imperial Cup at Sandown the previous week. It has a reputation for being a notoriously tricky betting heat, and the winner regularly returns at a big price - something shown by the 2019 winner, William Henry, who won at 28/1 for Nicky Henderson. Winners of the Coral Cup regularly go on to take their chance in the Stayers’ Hurdle the following season, with the most recent being the 2017 winner Supasundae, who has since finished second in the 2018 renewal and seventh in the 2019 renewal.  

What happened in the 2021 Coral Cup?

Paul Hennessy's Heaven Help Us produced a fine front-running display to claim victory in the Coral Cup, as the Irish raider bounded to a nine-length winner over Craigneiche with Tea Clipper (third) and Sayo (fourth) completing the placings.

Who is the most iconic winner of the Coral Cup?

Several winners of the Coral Cup have gone on to bigger and better things, including the 2014 winner, the Nicky Henderson-trained Whisper. Having prevailed at the Festival by the smallest of margins, it didn’t take long for Whisper to build on that, winning the Grade 1 Liverpool Hurdle at Aintree the following month - a race he would follow up in 12 months later. Whisper would go on to develop into a top chaser, and was part of one of the most memorable finishes in Cheltenham Festival ever - though admittedly, he was as much as a spectator as the rest of us - sticking to his task gamely in the 2017 RSA Chase, while the enigmatic Might Bite proceeded to seemingly throw away all chances of victory when veering disastrously right after the final flight, before snatching victory from the jaws of defeat.    

Are there any trials for the Coral Cup?

With the Coral Cup being a handicap, the route to Cheltenham is a little more unclear, and contenders can come from a host of sources. The Coral Cup’s distance of two miles and five furlongs means it can prove useful to keep an eye on qualifiers for the Pertemps Final (which is over three miles), while races such as the Welsh Champion Hurdle at Ffos Las and the Boyne Hurdle at Navan have been contested by recent winners of the Coral Cup on their way to Cheltenham.

Who is the most successful jockey in the Coral Cup?

The most successful jockey in the history of the Coral Cup is Davy Russell, who has ridden three winners in the race, courtesy of Naiad de Misselot (2008), Carlito Brigante (2011) and Diamond King (2016). 

Who is the most successful trainer in the Coral Cup?

The most successful trainer in the history of the Arkle Trophy is the legendary Martin Pipe, who has trained the winner of the race on three occasions, with the inaugural winner of the race, Olympian (1993), Big Strand (1997) and Ilnamar (2002).
